The silver linings playbook book The silver linings playbook
An enchanting first novel about love, madness, and Kenny G. The Silver Linings Playbook is the riotous and poignant story of how one man regains his memory and comes to terms with the magnitude of his wife’s betrayal. During the years he spends in a mental health facility, Pat Peoples formulates a theory about silver linings: he believes his life is a movie produced by God, his mission is to become physically fit and emotionally supportive, and his happy ending will be the return of his estranged wife, Nikki. The result is a touching and funny story that helps us look at both depression and love in a wonderfully refreshing way.

Cat sense : how the new feline science can make you a better friend to your pet book Cat sense : how the new feline science can make you a better friend to your pet
Today there are three cats for every dog on the planet, and yet cats remain more mysterious, even to their most adoring owners. Unlike dogs, cats evolved as solitary hunters, and, while many have learned to live alongside humans and even feel affection for us, they still don't quite "get us" the way dogs do, and perhaps they never will. But cats have rich emotional lives that we need to respect and understand if they are to thrive in our company. In Cat Sense, renowned anthrozoologist John Bradshaw takes us further into the mind of the domestic cat than ever before, using cutting-edge scientific research to dispel the myths and explain the true nature of our feline friends.

What Des wants is an escape from paparazzi and gossip columns, and she's found it at Logan's ranch. Now it's up to her to prove that she's like any other girl looking to be accepted for who she is. And she's hoping that it's by this real-life cowboy who has everything it takes--and more--to give her the kind of happily ever after that can't be found in the movies.
